Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Skunked It's just OK, not great for small animals
Doesn't work that well. Missing a key design. They need a universal joint adjustment so you can adjust the angle of the head better. Doesn't work on small animals such as skunks and raccoons. They are so low to the ground that the sensor does not pick up on them when they are farther away. If they had a better angle adjustment then it might work but honestly it was a waste of money and water. My lawn got torn up by the skunks looking for grubs both with it and without out it so it was't much of a deterrent. Also, their design with the battery case isn't that water proof. It may work on bigger animals really well. My mailman and delivery people can contest to that. But the smaller ones, I think you will have some challenges similar to what I experienced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Safe for garden non lethal to wildlife
Last year I planted hundreds of dollars of plants and shrubs and herbs that were killed or eaten by the stray cats and squirrels. This product has changed the outcome for my flower garden and shade garden. Nothing gets by this product. It works even better than I imagined. Best of all the animals are not injured and my garden is safe. I really enjoy watching how well it works.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy Terrible hose connector
While the sensor is adequate the hose connector is the worst I have ever seen.
The connector is apparently designed so the user can not strip the threads. Consequently when tightened even a little, the connector pops off of the hose and if not tightened it will leak like crazy. There is a very fine line where it can be tightened sufficiently to not leak yet still stay connected. If you like to be frustrated you will absolutely love this sprinkler.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bella Really cool idea!
This is a nifty little tool for scaring away animals (in my case overly-aggressive deer). I love how its configurable in that you can set whether you want to to use water or noise. Seems to work well enough without being an annoyance. Kind of a like a digital scarecrow. Has worked somewhat but I'll admit the deer in my area are very brave and don't seem to be deterred by much.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rustle Saved my garden
We have always had deer using our garden like a salad bar. This year my frustration hit a high when they ate my lilies just before they bloomed. My plan was a motion detector connected to a high voltage cable but my girlfriend said no. Then I saw this little combo. The deer visits immediately stopped and my tomato plants are growing huge and giving wonderful fruit. The price is steep but it still uses the original batteries I installed and is easy to use. Now the cat is not happy with the new backyard addition.

Theres a neighbors dog that would jump our 5' stucco wall to come into our yard. He would relieve himself and then jump back over. My husband found this tool online and wanted to give it a try. It worked like a charm! I was a little skeptical. Easy to set up and easy to uninstall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al Excellent keeping deer away
I reluctantly purchased this product thinking the deer would just ignor it or get used to the spray. But I am very pleased how effective this is. When it activates while sensing motion it makes just enough noise to scare away the deer. We have herds of deer that roam through the yards all times of day and night. My wife even planted roses in the area of this thing and they have not touched a thing all summer. In fact, they stay clear of my front yard completely. Of course if you live in a cold climate you cannot leave out year round. The battery life for the sensor is great. The unit has been working for 7 months now and the batteries and the batteries have not been replaced.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JS Very disappointed
Well, sorry to say this item's performance was very poor. Returned it to one of the stores within a day. I was a little leary after opening up the box and looking at the item. It looked like poor quality, but hooked it up to give it a shot. Put it in the ground, hooked up the hose, (all as instructed). Within an hour of being hooked up water was leaking out from all over the device. Immediately it was returned. Very disappointed, but to HDs credit they accepted the return with no questions asked. This is why I shop at HD, so if there are any issues with a product it can be returned without a hassle.
